The Homestead Library Winner is . . .

Jamie has won a complete library of traditional skills — $475 worth of books, magazines, and preserving products to help build a dream homestead.

Jamie said:
“My mom is starting a nonprofit to teach teenagers traditional skills, such as foraging for native foods, canning, cooking over a fire/woodstove, and other "survival skills" so that the knowledge isn't lost and they can provide for themselves if things get tough. So, I would pass the prize package along to her...but probably read all of the books myself first.”
A panel of seven judges read all the entries and assigned the most points to Jamie’s post. We just love that this prize is going to help the next generation learn and live a more sustainable lifestyle. Mother Earth News declared September International Homesteading Education Month — they will be proud of Jamie’s use of this fantastic prize!

Speaking of Mother Earth News, the MEN Fair has begun today in Pennsylvania. Storey staff and many of our authors are there. Find out what is happening, see a schedule of author events, and enter for another chance to win! Go to whol.st/oreyFair
